Michael S. Fuhrer is a Professor in the School of Physics and Astronomy at Monash University, is an Australian Research Council Laureate Fellow, and is the director of the Monash Centre for Atomically Thin Materials. Fuhrer received his Ph.D. in physics from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1998. Prior to his current position, he was on the faculty of the University of Maryland, where he directed the Center for Nanophysics and Advanced Materials. Fuhrer’s research focuses on the electronic properties of low-dimensional materials, such as carbon nanotubes, graphene, and the surface and edge states of topological materials. He is a fellow of the American Physical Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
